August 2013[edit]

Your sole purpose here seems to be adding information to articles whose subjects have been given awards by Jefferson Awards for Public Service. I believe you have a conflict of interest and should stop adding this material. If you believe the material is relevant to a particular article, suggest it on the talk page. Generally speaking, the mere fact that a person won an award is not noteworthy unless there's a reliable, secondary source commenting on the award. I don't see any indication that you have added any sources for the award, just the mere fact it occurred.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:20, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Norman_Borlaug. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Ugog Nizdast (talk) 06:50, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

May I ask, are you connected to the American Institute for Public Service? Thanks. Hugh (talk) 20:21, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

I am interning with Jefferson Awards for Public Service and have been asked to add the awards to the winner's wikipedia pages. I will add citations today.

You have a clear conflict of interest. In addition, you are not allowed to edit on behalf of an organization. I suggest you revert all of the edits you've done so far. If you wish to add material about the organization to an article, go to the talk page of the article and suggest it, disclosing your conflict at the same time. If you do not revert your edits, and particularly if you add more, you risk being blocked for promoting an organization.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:29, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:27, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
